Twitch streamer Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker sent fans into a meltdown after he posted a TikTok video in which he crushed an entire watermelon with his thighs. The clip was in response to Hasan raising over $115k for women’s reproductive health services.
So, it’s no surprise that the news that millions of US women could be on the verge of losing the legal right to abortion according to a leaked government document, Hasan quickly condemned the move. He then went a step further by launching a charity drive to help women pay for safe abortions.
He promised that if the fundraiser raised $100k, he would post a video of himself crushing a watermelon with his thighs. Going on to smash his target, Hasan kept true to his promise.
Hasan’s watermelon-crushing TikTok goes viral
Although his original target was $100k, Hasan’s campaign went on to raise $115k by the first day. So, it was time to live up to his promise to fans and show off his epic watermelon-crushing skills.
Saying “promises made, promises kept, folks,” Hasan is featured sitting down on his outside patio before sticking the giant fruit between his thighs.
His first attempt didn’t have the desired effect he was looking for. However, his second one went perfectly giving him the ‘explosive break’ he wanted.
